Name: (real or other) Julia Rain Jeys Wellman. Rain Jeys is my pen name (middle + maiden)
A brief description about yourself: I'm a young adult fantasy author and am currently working on a seven-volume series. It is my goal in life to be a successful published author. I also like to write poetry. I like exploring emotions and playing around with words.
When did you first come to DeviantART? Maybe a little less than a year ago. Came for the photomanipulations, stayed for the Lit community (once I learned there was one!)

About The AuthorThe greatest challenge for me is returning my life to some semblance of normalcy after my spinal cord injury. When I was seventeen, I fell from a ladder and bruised my spinal cord, which left me in a wheelchair for over a year. Since then, I have progressed from a walker, to crutches, to a cane. At the time of the accident, I had only been dating my boyfriend for a month. Astounding, he stayed with me, even though I spent a month in rehab three hours away.
I've had to face the fact that I will never walk the same again. At first, I thought that I would just take a few years and use them to get myself better. I put my entire life on hold. It
Dear SantaDear Santa,
I may be twenty-three now, but I still believe in you: in the spirit of Christmas. So I'm writing this, despite my age, and despite the distinct lack of Christmas spirit I currently feel. Because for me, Christmas means being home in California with my family, and this will be the first year I've been away from them for the holidays. You see, when I was seventeen, I had a terrible accident that left me in a wheelchair for more than a year, and today has me walking with the addition of a cane, and a whole host of chronic pains and conditions, and minus my left big toe, rig
Yule BlessingsSo today is December 21st, which is, as some of you will know, the Winter Solstice. You may not know that it is also an ancient Pagan Holiday known as Yule, on which many popular Christmas traditions are based.
Yule celebrates the rebirth of the God. Since the God represents the sun, and Winter Solstice is the time when the days start to get longer again, rather than shorter, the rebirth of the God symbolizes the return of light to the earth. The wreaths popular at this time of the year symbolize the wheel of the year, the Wiccan/Pagan calendar of holy days, known as sabbats. These sabbats celebrate the life cycle of the God, represented by
Letter To My Ten-Year-Old SelfDear Julia,
Hi. You don't know me yet, but I'm you, thirteen years from now. I'm writing to you because I know you need encouragement right now. You're sick. You're scared. You need hope, and to know that things will work out, in one way or another. That's why I'm writing to you now. It's nearing Christmas, and you're trying to keep your hopes up, but sometimes it's hard to be cheerful. And you know what? That's okay. You don't have to put on that brave face for everyone, to suffer in silence so that they suffer less. They love you, and they want you to confide in them. They know this is hard for you. I know this is hard for you. And I know
JoyceHaving kicked the man in the balls and relieved him of his belongings, Joyce wasn't quite sure what to do next. She could run, but he might come after her the next minute. If she tied him up here, in the middle of nowhere, he might be eaten by wolves; or starve to death. Besides, she didn't have any rope. She could kill him... perhaps. The thought left a bitter taste in her mouth.
'What am I to do with you?' she sighed.
'Well,' he groaned while giving her a look that sent shivers down her spine, 'You can run, but that won't help you, cause I will find you! So you just wait another few minutes until I get back up again - and I mean úp- and t
